Pekinese Stitch

Back to working on Imperial Blooms, adding the Pekinese Stitch. Needed Sue's instructions and my Embroidery Guide to get started, usually make my embellishment stitches much larger than they need to be, but want them to stand out, so my stitch is probably three times as large as noted in the instructions, but I like the look.

Will return to finish the bullion stitch when I get the right needle, the one and only I have, the eye is ripping the linen thread too much. I consider that I have a nice stash of everything, fabric, thread, since living so far away from even the post office, but needles, I'm looking in the bottom of drawers hoping to find "the needle".

And then had to take Sidney to the vet yesterday, knew something had to be wrong, more than her missing Jim,


talking nonstop, eating like a horse yet not gaining weight, and as I suspected, she has hyperthroidism. So a pill twice a day, and after only a couple of pills, she already seems more relaxed.

  3. I've never heard of the pekinese stitch and I like it and the size you're stitching. The further along you get, the more excited I get about doing a Sue Spargo design. My 16-year-old cat also is taking thyroid meds 2x daily. She loves taking the pill - NOT. Glad Sydney is doing better.

  6. Your stitching is so pretty and I love the new stitch. I use the same ones over and over. Time to get out the books i think and try something different.
    I'm so pleased Sidney is feeling better he did look so sad.
    Hugs, Angela.
